  1. Five things we learned: Notre Dame 17, Stanford 14

    Oct 4, 2014, 10:25 PM EST

    Stanford v Notre Dame

    Anatomy of a soul-crushing defeat: Back-breaking turnovers. Missed scoring opportunities. Wasted performances. The Irish looked like they had put together the perfect recipe for a painful loss through 57 rain-soaked, wind-swept minutes in Notre Dame Stadium. But Everett Golson and the Irish offense rallied for a game-winning touchdown drive, helping the Irish pull off a wild 17-14 victory over Stanford Saturday afternoon.

    Stanford v Notre Dame

    Fall weather came in a hurry. With temperatures in the mid-70s earlier this week and expected to be back there as of Monday, Stanford was welcomed to South Bend by temperatures hovering around 40 degrees, a stiff wind and rain all but assured this afternoon.

    I’ve been told that the wonderfully simple mailbox imagery I’ve open-sourced from the internet isn’t cutting it. So we’ve made some changes to reflect our new attitude in the mailbag.

  4. Pregame Six Pack: Showdown with Stanford

    It wasn’t long ago that a game with Stanford was a Saturday you might skip. On a schedule loaded with rivals, it was hard to consider the Cardinal one of them. But in a matchup that’s only missed two seasons since 1988, the battle between the two programs has taken flight, mostly thanks to the advancement of the football program in Palo Alto.

    As the calendar turns to October, the heart of the football season arrives. The next month will likely determine the fate of the Irish, kicking off with Saturday’s matchup against Stanford. The Stanford Daily’s Joseph Beyda gets us ready for the Cardinal.

    Even without defensive coordinator Derek Mason, and the loss of standouts Trent Murphy, Shayne Skov, David Yankey and Ben Gardner, Stanford is expected to once again be a top ten team. We take a closer look at David Shaw’s team post-spring with the Stanford Daily’s Joseph Beyda.

    The regular season comes to a close on Saturday, with No. 25 Notre Dame visiting No. 8 Stanford. The Irish will have a chance to beat four ranked opponents on the season, though pulling off a victory in Palo Alto will be the biggest win on a season that certainly had its ups and downs.…

    Happy Thanksgiving. Here’s hoping everybody is spending it with family, friends and loved ones. The Notre Dame football team is gathering today, with coaches and their families celebrating with the team as a new record for turkeys eaten is attempted. Before I get to work in the kitchen today, let’s get to the IBG (sorry,…

    The regular season finale takes Notre Dame to Northern California on Saturday, where they’ll face No. 8 Stanford, a program that’s spent the past four seasons in rarified air. With the opportunity to win ten games for the fourth straight season, David Shaw’s Cardinal already have their ticket booked for the Pac-12 Championship game. But…

    It may not have been pretty, but it was a classic finish for the Fighting Irish defense. With Stanford having 1st and Goal at the 3, the Cardinal got the ball to within a foot of the goal line with two plays to get it in. But the Irish defense wasn’t about to give up…

    The Stanford Cardinal have quite a feather in their cap. Entering the season, they’re the only team in college football history to defeat Notre Dame and USC in three consecutive seasons. David Shaw’s squad has already extended their streak against the Trojans. They’ll look to do the same against the Irish, running their record winning…

    When you laid out the checklist of things Notre Dame needed to do to beat No. 4 Stanford on Saturday night, the objectives were quite clear. Limit mistakes, win the battle at the line of scrimmage, and eliminate turnovers — bedrock principles for winning football games. Yet from the opening minutes of the Irish’s 28-14…

    You can spin yourself dizzy trying to think of the different permutations that could help Notre Dame slide their way into the BCS rankings’ top 14 teams. But all of that doesn’t matter if the Irish don’t show up tonight, tasked with one of their biggest challenges on the year with Stanford and quarterback Andrew…

    At this time of year, no football team is entirely healthy. (Just ask the guys in Palo Alto.) But as the Irish head into their final — and most important — game of the year, let’s take a look at the positional depth chart and see just how well the Irish are hanging on. Brian…

    In a rivalry that’s intensified over the past few years, Notre Dame and Stanford have agreed to continue their football series through the 2019 season. Following the 2011 season, the Irish and Cardinal will trade off home games for eight more years. “We are very excited to be extending our football series with the University…

    News broke yesterday that Notre Dame’s final game of the season, a highly-anticipated date with Stanford in Palo Alto after Thanksgiving, will be played in primetime, televised on either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. That pushes the Irish slate to four primetime games, with the kickoff against Pittsburgh still to be determined and likely another evening…

    Andrew Luck

    If Notre Dame has BCS aspirations in 2011, the news of Andrew Luck returning to Stanford means they’ll need to get by some awfully talented quarterbacks next season. Even with coaching chaos at Michigan (we’re getting to that later today), the Irish will face a schedule chalked full of veteran, talented quarterbacks. Between Denard Robinson,…

    After the first eight games of his inaugural season, Brian Kelly has won exactly as many games as he has lost, which has quite a few members of the Irish faithful weary. Kelly has failed to win the close games that got Charlie Weis removed after his fifth season, and even worse, has openly conceded…
